I’m Glad to Get in Touch with You
It’s 3 p.m. The market has just closed and there comes a lull.
Now it’s time for a coffee break. I turn on my mobile phone and see 2 missed?calls, 3 text messages.
Oh, it will be a busy afternoon just preparing for the business trip to Hong Kong?this week.
Where would be a good place to take?a client out for lunch in Central Hong?Kong?
I ended up choosing “L16” which is?located in the center of Hong Kong Park and?dialed then for a reservation.
“Hi, I would like to make a reservation?for lunch this Thursday at 12 p.m.”
“May I have your name please?”
“My name is Liv Kim and I would prefer?window seats, please.”
“How many people will there?be?”?“Only 2.”
“The reservation is completed?under your name. Thank you for?calling.”
I should also remember to give Tony, whom I will meet through Andrew, a call.
I have to call him right away to first introduce myself and then schedule the time?and place to meet.
现在是喝咖啡休息的时间。我打开手机，有2 个未接电话和3 条未读短信。
